An unnerving incident in which the very popular law blogger Ann Althouse has had her blog suspended as spam, apparently on a whim of Blogger/Google. I hope Ann gets a good resolution, but this would be a good time for anyone hosted on Blogger to export their blog. It's easy, you should do it anyway from time to time, and you'll find it under Settings>Basic. This would enable you to move your blog to Wordpress or another platform if necessary.

I hate to go all conspiratorial, but after recent political events in Wisconsin--which she covered on her blog--do you suppose certain members of the teachers' union started a campaign to report her blog as a spam blog?
Weirder things have happened on the Internet, to be sure, and I don't doubt that she has some enemies. Backup remains a good idea whether one has bored union enemies with time on their hands or no.
